It is perfect for your next accessory,  or a fantastic choice for your next sweater.  Annie is modeling her Gradient Pullover by Amy Miller knit with the Silky Wool.  (Actually the first time Annie wore this sweater in the shop, I loved it so much I declared that we MUST bring in that yarn)!

Sweater – A – Month June 2014

September 1, 2014

I’m using this labour day weekend to catch up on some of my blogging. I’ve wanted to share this sweater for a long time, I absolutely love it!

Loki Sweater

The Loki sweater by Ragga Knits was my first attempt at both an Icelandic pattern and steeking!  I thoroughly enjoyed both! Although I think I need a bit more practice with my steek, I’m actually hoping to take the steeking class by local, Melissa Caines, at Knit City 2014!

I really loved this pattern, and I cannot wait for the weather to cool down so my little guy can start wearing this!  My husbands maternal side of the family is from Iceland, so my plan is to make all my boys Icelandic sweaters this year (and hopefully make a trip someday to Iceland!).

 

I knit the sweater with the Briggs and Little Sport. A fantastic yarn for colourwork. We have a fantastic colour pallet of this yarn, perfect for your next project!

Meet Annie!

August 26, 2014

It has been far too long since I have introduced Annie – Baaad Anna’s newest staff member. I’m sure you have all met her already, but in case you haven’t here is Annie – she join our team in January this year, and we are so happy she is here!

Annie has knitting on every side of her family, so she learned to knit when she was about five.  It didn’t really take until she was 18 but she hasn’t been able to stop!  She loves talking to crafty people about their projects and ideas.  She mostly knits little things, but if she can get her hands on a good cozy sweater (or even a blanket!) she is the happiest person alive!  She loooves being wrapped up in wool!
